My sister and I both live in Michigan and it was important for my mom to have the help she needed to care for my father so she would not become ill from the stress of it all. Closer to the end of my dad's life, we had 24-hour care with VITAS Healthcare. We could not have asked for a more compassionate, caring group of people that cared not only for him, but for us as well. There were occasions where we needed to call in the middle of the night for pain medication or ask for advice from the medical staff and the service was always prompt. In my opinion, we could not have received any better, compassionate, caring service. It takes a special kind of person to do this work. If put in this situation again, in an area where they are available, I would not hesitate to call them again.
